Why would people cheat.? I never even considered that people would be able to. 

I agree with Joc, you have serious mental health issues if you feel the need to cheat. I'm currently playing Assassin's Creed Odyssey on hard difficulty I have been stuck trying to beat Medusa in the game for two days. I could just reset the difficulty to easy and move on, but what's the point and there is not pleasure in it.

It's refreshing to get beaten in up to six games at once.

I wouldn't even know how to cheat. It's all based on trust. Someone cheating would destroy the whole spirit of the tournament.

My late brother taught me how to play chess a long time ago. I'm no expert and don't expect to win.

I took part in the last UM chess tournament and haven't played since, apart from one recent warm up game. I'm up for some more practice if anyone wants to do the same.

I notice I'm the only female (so far) who's signed up for this tournament. Come on ladies!  I'm feeling rather outnumbered here :lol:

Is it possible to spectate games? It would be cool to spectate the final match of the tournament, obviously that would allow people to cheat by giving advice, but I dout anyone on UM would do that.

If you go to someone's profile there is a tab to "view games"

From there you can select a game to view and it is easy to navigate through the moves.

It would be unfair, although I'm recovering from serious illness, I've done martial arts basically my whole life. You can't play chess when your knocked out.
